Privacy Policy

The IC has national centers that integrate and coordinate the activities of the entire IC, or in some cases, broader U.S. Government activities, Those overseen by ODNI are the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), the National Counterproliferation Center (NCPC), and the National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC). Many agencies have internal mission centers that integrate and coordinate their agency’s efforts in a certain mission area, such as CIA’s Counterterrorism Mission Center and DIA’s regional centers.

ODNI Centers

The mission of the ODNI is to lead and support IC integration; delivering insights, driving capabilities, and investing in the future.

The ODNI is staffed by officers from across the IC and is organized into directorates, centers, and oversight offices that support the DNI’s role as head of the IC and manager of the National Intelligence Program (NIP).

Directorates

The ODNI directorates -- Mission Integration (MI) and Policy and Capabilities (P&C) -- are organized around ODNI core functions to provide a more holistic view and strategic approach to intelligence integration.

Mission Integration delivers strategic intelligence and distinctive insights and drives resource allocations for the nations Intelligence issues.

Mission Centers

In their roles as functional National Intelligence Managers (NIMs), the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), the National Counterproliferation Center (NCPC), and the National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) also contribute to the mission of intelligence integration. For both functional and regional NIMs, the Unifying Intelligence Strategies (UIS) are critical plans for communicating priorities and achieving intelligence integration. NIMs develop UIS in line with prioritized IC requirements and are charged with leading integration across the IC by function and region.

Oversight
